    The Windows Store suffers from the same problem as every app marketplace not named the Apple App Store or Google Play Store: a crippling lack of apps. Microsoft and Amazon should have learned by now that it's impossible to succeed in smartphones without having a premium app store with major apps. Microsoft is pushing to make it easier for developers to port Android and iOS apps over to Windows Phone OS, though.

    In the coming years, the Windows Store just might catch its competitors, but I have reservations.

    It is the restrictive polices to get apps into the store that are a problem. There has to be some incentive for developers to port popular apps to Windows first. Decisions like not allowing competing web browsers in are foolhardy at best.
